Accommodating, accessible and equipped, the new Hofmann 15K Four-Post Open Front Alignment Lift is designed for the modern era of automotive service with a robust and refined structure made for professional-grade lifting.

“The Hofmann 15K Four-Post Lift features heavy-duty lifting capacity and an open-front design, and because it is equipped to handle a diverse range of vehicles, including large pick-up trucks like crew cabs and dual rear wheel vehicles, it will help you take your shop’s service work to the next level,” said Neil Davis, Hofmann Product Manager. “The Hofmann 15K Four-Post Lift is ideal for shops that do a high volume of work as they can use it on most types of passenger vehicles and trucks. Also, the design of this lift is a must for camera-based aligners as the visibility for the targets is significantly better with our Hofmann lift.”

Available in two lengths, standard and extended, the Hofmann 15K Four-Post Open Front Alignment Lift has a lifting capacity of up to 15,000 lbs. Its convenient open-front construction allows service technicians easy access to vehicle service areas for hassle-free adjustments and repairs.

Enhanced performance

In addition, locked and lighted models are also available, which provide enhanced performance by allowing the technician to perform critical tasks by illuminating both inspection and adjustment areas and by sequencing the locking of alignment plates. Models equipped with locks and lights feature an easy locking control activation from the lift console to reduce walking and effort from resetting alignment pins in plates. Also, the lighting illuminates alignment adjustment and calibration areas, while front LEDs are mounted in the turnplate base to easily accommodate varying vehicle wheel tracks and rear LEDs are strategically positioned on the slip plates.

The ultra-low profile seven-inch high runways allow easy-on approach for low-profile vehicles.  In addition, the four-inch movable front wheel stops have clearance for long, low-profile vehicles. The extra-wide 26-inch runways and extended 100-inch rear slip plates make it easy for short or long, and narrow and wide, vehicles to be aligned correctly. The wide rear cross beam support allows for dual wheel trucks to drive on the lift without interference and there is ample vision for camera base alignment systems.

Adjustable jack beam 

A great addition to the Hofmann 15K lift is the new adjustable air-hydraulic jack beam with a completely new design and robust features such as extended reach lifting arms, higher lifting stroke and very low drive over height. This jack was designed to collapse and retract inside the runways to provide the best possible options for Hofmann premium lifts.
